The Church of Scientology had actress Cathy Schenkelberg for 14 years; it took another 5 years to leave them behind in the face of harassing phone calls, midnight knocks on her door by “outreach” staffers, an expensive custody battle and social rejection, and the hacking websites of venues she is performing. She has the courage to tell us this hilarious and horrifying story under the direction of Shirley Anderson with lighting design by Steve Miller, sound design by Victoria Deiorio and graphic design by Brett Newton.

Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they’ve kept for years. What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.
